Living at a high elevation has been associated with a lowered risk of cardiovascular problems, lower levels of obesity, and even a lengthened lifespan, Richard Wolper explains.
Seasoned housing developer and Mark 25 CEO Richard Wolper is a strong advocate of year-round mountain living, having built four cutting-edge housing communities in mountainous areas in Utah. He offers insight into why aspiring homeowners should seriously consider moving into a mountainous area, explaining that there are not only practical benefits but also unbeatable physical and mental health benefits to doing so.
Living at a high elevation has been associated with a lowered risk of cardiovascular problems, lower levels of obesity, and even a lengthened lifespan, Richard Wolper explains. What's more, temperatures are likely to be milder on the mountain than at lower elevations, making it easy for someone who lives in a mountain setting to get physical exercise on a daily or near-daily basis. This in itself is a huge physical health benefit, as exercising boosts cardiovascular function and helps a person sleep well at night to prevent insomnia-related health problems such as a lowered immunity to sickness. Wolper's housing communities, which are not only luxurious but also affordable, offer some great exercise options, including an indoor workout facility with panoramic views of nature, golfing opportunities, and easy access to nearby ski resorts. Richard Wolper also points out that nature has a way of lowering stress levels, improving cognitive function, and boosting one's mood. According to researchers, even the sounds of nature, such as birds and crickets chirping, can have a positive effect on cognitive performance. Humans have a very real connection with the natural environment and those who live in a mountainous area are more likely to enjoy far more of the natural world and all that it offers than those living in a busy city environment.
Richard Wolper strongly encourages anyone who is looking for a healthy, beautiful place to live to seriously consider all that mountain living has to offer. While scientists don't understand all the reasons why, they have found that mountain living is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, good for both physical and mental health. What's more, it does not have to be as inconvenient as some make it out to be, as the right community can help one enjoy not only the benefits of mountain living but also amenities typically associated with large cities.
